Ferry services resume from Northcote Point Wharf

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Hi neighbours, ferry services from Northcote Point are relaunching, more than two and a half years after the wharf was closed for an upgrade.

The 60-year-old Northcote Point wharf was temporarily closed for health and safety reasons in June 2018 after routine maintenance revealed wooden structural pieces of the wharf had deteriorated.

The wharf was due to reopen on January 25 – a year later than originally planned – but its reopening ceremony was postponed due to the new Covid case in Northland. Ferry sailings were also delayed due to adverse weather and supplier delays.

Following a blessing by Ngāti Whātua on Thursday morning, ferry services resumed and will run between the CBD’s Downtown Ferry Terminal, Northcote and Birkenhead and back to the city again between 6.25am and 11pm, Monday to Friday, with a less frequent timetable at weekends.

Missing Dog

Maureen from Forrest Hill

Rocky is a Maltese/Lapso very friendly 11yo missing in CastorBay on this Wednesday afternoon. He was probably frightened by thunder and appears to have managed to escape from a back deck up a right of way on Beach Rd/Esplanade just up from Castor Bay Beach. Rocky is familiar with the area but is a visitor. Please note phone number on his tag is incorrect and he is microchipped. Please phone distraught owner on 021454580 or 0211838358 if no reply.
